Survivor: Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites - May 8 Blog Party

Survivor: Caramoan photo SCaramoanJackie_zpsf4f14b87.gif

Come one, come all ... we're in the final stretch of the season. The big finale is this Sunday evening from 8pm-11pm. Let's hope it starts on time. PLEASE! Tonight's episode, according to the promos, has the loved ones coming. That tends not to be my personal favorite each season, but it can sometimes be interesting. Supposedly, two loved ones will come for either each castaway or at least one castaway. Ho-hum.

I don't believe I've ever rooted for a returning player to win a season unless it's been ALL returning players. This season I'd really enjoy a Cochran win. I had hoped I'd be cheering on the really local player, Eddie. Although he's fairly easy on the eyes, he doesn't rock my socks. Give me Cochran!

As the show airs, I'll update this page with the major happenings. So, you should refresh it now and then to get the latest. But the real party is always in the comments area! Come join us for the fun!

Their treemail came from Sprint with video messages from home.

At the Reward Challenge setting, the loved ones are brought out in person. They will work with them on the Reward Challenge which consists of, spinning, building rails on a frame and tossing bolos (sp?) -- balls separated by ropes -- on the rail "ladder" they built.

Brenda and her father win Reward -- a floating backyard barbeque -- she invites Dawn and her husband. Uh-oh. Jeff says other loved ones are there. Brenda can choose one other castaway and loved one or she can give up her loved one (and Dawn's) and the barbeque. Brenda gives it to the others.

Dawn breaks down more.

Immunity Challenge has them standing on a ledge over water with their hands in back of them, connected to a winch which lowers them more towards the water. Gah! Cochran is out first! Eddie, then Erik out. Only the women remain. Sherry out. Dawn wants to deal with Brenda, but Brenda's a no-go. But she falls into the water and Dawn actually wins Immunity for the first time!

Brenda thinks it's all good. However, it just might be the kiss of death for her game. While Dawn talked about ousting Eddie, Cochran and others know what a big threat Brenda is for the win.

Tribal Council time! Sherri votes Brenda. Brenda votes Eddie. Those were the only shown votes.

The tally: Eddie, Eddie, Erik, Brenda, Brenda, Brenda.

The tribe has spoken, Brenda. She cries. It hurts.

But how can she blame them? Really.

Hey Jackie and all... I've got six foot subs and iced cold beer.

~~~SPLASH~~~

Sharon S said...

Hi! I made it. Jackie, I'm also hoping Cochran wins, or at least makes it to the final three.

Jackie said...

Good evening!

Sharon S said...

No no...they need to stop talking about him!

monty924 said...

Sharon, that's probably a sign it won't be Cochran tonight :)))

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and Sharon.

Sharon S said...

What other prison has he been in?

Becky said...

I hope Cochran goes to the final.

Sharon S said...

Gosh, I do hope it is a sign it's not him!

Joe in NY said...

hi folks

monty924 said...

Hey Becky and Joe. The music this week is sort of creepy!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi All! I guess I'll go with Cochran too. After all he is my pool guy.

And the 3 amigos have fell apart.

Becky said...

Hey Monty and Joe. How much longer for school, Joe?

Sharon S said...

awwww

Becky said...

I am voting for Cochran for America's player. I really like Malcolm, but I love Cochran this year.

If he goes to the final three then I may vote for Malcolm, but don't hold me to it.

Joe in NY said...

finals next week..and then all summer rehabbing Keira's knees

Joe in NY said...

Kind of means nothing when Dawn cries...LOL

Becky said...

And they all cried! Pass me a beer, please. DRINK!!!

monty924 said...

Hillbilly Golf!!! Cool

Becky said...

Oh, boy. Cochran won't do well, I am afraid.

I bet they get to invite one other person.

Joe in NY said...

Do they have to spin around holding on to it? Why couldn't they just stand still and spin that way?

monty924 said...

Hi Ed... yeah, I'm rooting for Cochran too!

Sharon S said...

um....that's pretty cruel

Becky said...

Well, this is where you give it away.

Joe in NY said...

Nice twist. Not only would Brenda have to sacrifice her reward, she would end up screwing Dawn also!

Ed in Ohio said...

Tough spot Brenda!

Becky said...

Sharon, I agree that is it cruel. If Brenda chooses to keep it I think it will cost her four votes.

If she keeps it then she needs the II.

monty924 said...

She'll probably do it for favor!

Ed in Ohio said...

Hey Monty! Bromance avatar :)

Petals said...

Just popped in to say HI GUYS! I miss you, but I'm too tired to party.
I am a blubbering mess!!!

I love/hate the family episodes .

*sob*

Sharon S said...

what a strong woman

monty924 said...

She had to do it. Jury votes mean everything in this game... if she makes it to the end.

Becky said...

I think that will get her to the finals.

Ed in Ohio said...

She won..& then she lost...maybe she'll win some votes?

monty924 said...

Crap, I forgot about the drinking game. Catching up from all of Dawn's crying.

CHEERS

Joe in NY said...

extra mean parking the boat right off the beach...

Ed in Ohio said...

Man that's cruel for those two!!

monty924 said...

Lol, Ed. Don't you love it :)))

Hey Petals!

Joe in NY said...

A little lack of generosity there, Dawn

Joe in NY said...

For a bunch of returnees, they aren't very good at finding food.

monty924 said...

Ut oh!

Sharon S said...

Really wish Cochran and Brenda weren't targeting each other....

Ed in Ohio said...

The ultimate cruelty would be if they voted Brenda off tonight!

Becky said...

Joe, I agree with both your statements. Horrible of Survivor to park right off shore.

And they are lousy at finding food.

Becky said...

I like Brenda. She is one tough little girl. But I like Cochran better.

Sharon S said...

I'm with you Becky, but if I think I'd be happiest if one of them won, which would only be likely if they both go to the end!

monty924 said...

Like this challenge. Someone lightweight should win it.

Becky said...

NO!!!!!

SueGee said...

~~~SPLASH~~~

Hi everyone! Just home from work and hoping there is something left to drink and eat tonight LOL

SueGee on the Left Coast

Ed in Ohio said...

Brenda looks confident

monty924 said...

My last remaing Amigo may go home tonight!

monty924 said...

Don't believe her, Brenda!

Becky said...

Come on, Dawn.

monty924 said...

SueGee, grab some of this sub and a cold beer!

Becky said...

GOOD!!!

monty924 said...

Oh, if they vote Brenda out tonight that would be soooooo cruel!

Laurie said...

Sharon S said...

It MIGHT be "all good" Brenda...you might have sealed your fate though.

Ed in Ohio said...

Will it be the obvious...Eddie...or will they surprise us??

Becky said...

Monty, it would be cruel. But Brenda is tough. She could go all the way to the end.

SueGee said...

Thanks Monte - a sub would be lovely!! And I won't even try to catch up on the drinking game ROFL

SueGee

Nickelpeed said...

Hi all. Quick peek, then back to work. Bet Dawn targets Brenda tonight for giving reward up to others. I'll eek in later. Hope all of you are doing well.

monty924 said...

Ed, I agree with Becky. Brenda should go tonight, but Eddie is so easy.

Sharon S said...

What kind of a creature was that in the tree?

monty924 said...

I say Brenda goes!

Ed in Ohio said...

Andrea & Eddie....hhhmmm??

monty924 said...

Reynold shaved his porn stache off

monty924 said...

*70's porn stache

Sharon S said...

I need some anti-anxiety meds!

Ed in Ohio said...

Easy Eddie might have to change his name to Lucky!

monty924 said...

For two guys that started out so cocky, both Eddie and Reynold changed in the game.

Sharon S said...

Who voted for Eric?

monty924 said...

They did it!!!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Wow!

Delee said...

Shocker in a way!

monty924 said...

It might hurt, Brenda... but it was SMART!

Becky said...

It was cruel, but it was a smart move.

Joe in NY said...

That is a little cold. This is the part of Survivor I hate. When there is no loyalty left and no honesty.

Say what you will about Russell Hantz, he was 100% loyal to his girls. LOL

Becky said...

Great minds, Monty.

Sharon S said...

Next episode will be Dawn in tears for hurting Brenda.

monty924 said...

LOL, Joe. Yes he was!

Sharon S said...

unless Dawn voted for Erik?

Ed in Ohio said...

Might've been a smart move, but that was COLD!

Becky said...

I think that if Brenda hadn't told Dawn that she wanted to get rid of Cochran then Dawn wouldn't have flipped.

Joe in NY said...

Frankly, judging by the reaction of the jury, I don't think Brenda was a shoe-in with that jury. In fact, Eddie is probably a more likely winner. They might regret keeping him around. The jury is going to be filled with either former Eddie allies or people that were blind-sided by the remaining returnees.

The only one I can't see getting any votes in a finale is Sherri. She was a coat tail rider.

Becky said...

I imagine Eddie voted for Eric.

Jackie said...

I really admire Brenda's gameplay. But I would have made that move myself. She can win challenges. She can win the million.

It's more shocking Sherri is still in the game and Dawn actually won Immunity.

monty924 said...

*wink* Becky

Dawn didn't look too upset at having just did that. I think they all knew it was a must vote!

Sharon S said...

oh no! not a snake bite taking someone out?

Becky said...

See you guys Sunday. Thanks, Jackie.

Sharon S said...

You were right Becky -- I'm surprised Cochran didn't bring Eddie in on the Brenda vote to ensure it.

Petals said...

OMG. I HATE COCHRAN & DAWN!

Sharon S said...

Thanks for hosting Jackie. See everyone Sunday.

Petals said...

I was crying right along with Brenda. You could see Jeff was pissed, his face before he said her name.

Becky said...

If Cochran wins immunity he will take Sherri and Dawn to the end.

monty924 said...

Agree on all counts, Jackie.

I guess we'll all be back on Sunday. See everyone then. Thanks for hosting us, Jackie!

Ed in Ohio said...

Cold-hearted game but I guess that's what it takes!

Nite All!

Jackie said...

Thank you for stopping by, everyone!

Ohhh ... Criminal Minds began with Donovan's 'Sunshine Superman.' I always loved that song!
